What is a Wood Fired Hot Tub?

Wood fired hot tubs (also known as wood burning hot tubs) are heated soaking tubs powered by wood burning fire. By using natural firewood to heat the water, a wood fired hot tub allows you to enjoy a hot bath outdoors even while living off-grid.

How to Use the ALFI Brand FireHotTub

The ALFI Brand wood fired hot tub doesn’t need to be plugged in or connected to any drain. Make sure you decide in advance where you would like to place your hot tub. The area that you choose must be clear of brush and debris, on a flat solid surface, in the open air (not underneath a shelter or roof) and ONLY outdoors.

Step 1: Fill the tub with water from your garden hose and light a wood fire in the pit. To avoid damage to the heating coil, ensure that the tub is filled with water before igniting a fire inside the coils.

This portable outdoor wood burning hot tub requires a minimum of 130 gallons of water to start water circulation and can hold a maximum of 220 gallons when full to the top with nobody inside.

Step 2: Water is pushed through metal coils surrounding a wire basket where the firewood is housed. The basket can be raised or lowered to adjust the temperature of the water. Keep feeding the fire with wood as desired.

Step 3: Water will take 2-3 hours to heat up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit under normal weather conditions, though it will take longer in cold weather. Given that the tub does not have a thermal indicator, it is up to you to ensure water safety before entering the tub. Please do not leave tub unattended while the fire is lit.

Note: grill your favorite food over the hot flames or toast up some warm s'mores for the kids while you wait for the water to heat.

Do not attempt to move the FireHotTub while it is filled with water. Drain the FireHotTub after each use in order to prevent growth of dangerous bacteria. Extinguish the fire completely before draining the tub.
